5. THEME

Only films whose themes are related to human rights may participate, particularly with the axis proposed for this edition of the HUMANS FEST: the fight against climate change and the defense of the territory and the environment.

We thus join the city's efforts that have earned Valencia the award as European Green Capital in 2024.

We are experiencing a climate emergency that affects life across the planet. We are committed to a transformative cinema that focuses on the struggles and resistance against climate change, that denounces and/or provides solutions to avoid catastrophic consequences and guarantees a sustainable future for the next generations. It is essential that the ecosocial transformation for which we advocate is carried out from an intersectional perspective applying a Human Rights approach. This 15th edition of the Humans Fest wants to contribute to generating new imaginaries of the relationship between people and nature, without losing sight of the rest of the Sustainable Development Goals.

Our objective as a film and human rights festival is to promote independent cinema that entertains and raises awareness; generate a meeting point between creators and citizens; and in 2024 in particular, promote audiovisuals as a tool to achieve mitigation and adaptation to Climate Change.

In the Curt i Barrejat Section, of Valencian short films, the thematic axis is expanded to all human rights, included in the Universal Declaration, although we will prioritize this intersectional view of climate and territory defense.
